Producer Note
Lake Chalice was established in 1989 with a vision of producing internationally
recognised wines from the heart of the Marlborough region. New Zealand’s native
falcon, the ‘Kārearea’, is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine.
Kārearea favour the remote mountains and foothills of the upper Awatere and
Wairau valleys and these valleys are home to Lake Chalice’s three unique vineyard
sites. Each vineyard has a diverse microclimate, biodiversity and terroir which are
seamlessly translated into multi award winning wines by talented winemaker Chloe
Gabrielsen. Taking a boutique approach she handcrafts parcels of fruit from single
vineyards into elegant, aromatic, fruit driven wines and has garnered a global
reputation of outstanding quality. Certified ‘Sustainable Winegrower of New
Zealand’.


Vineyard
The fruit for this wine is predominantly sourced from selected vineyards in the flood
plains of Marlborough’s lower Wairau Valley. The eastern flood plain soils are nutrientrich silty loam, renowned for delivering fruit forward notes. In order to capture the
maximum expression of regional characteristics, the pruning, irrigation and canopy
management is dictated by each variety and by each unique block of land.


Winemaking
The grapes were immediately pressed to minimise skin contact followed by cool
fermentation in with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, in
order to capture the desired level of fruity aromatics. A small proportion was aged in
seasoned French oak adding complexity to the wine. This wine was blended to be
approachable in its youth.


Tasting Note
